PLAID FRIDAY is November 23, 2018
Show your support for local and independent businesses and wear PLAID
Plaid Friday celebrates the diversity and creativity of local and independent businesses. It’s a fun and enjoyable alternative to the big box store “Black Friday” consumer frenzy. Also, it’s a way to show your support for Monadnock Buy Local – a network of locally owned businesses, organizations and citizens working to build a stronger local economy. So plan to wear PLAID all day on November 23rd!
To amplify this year's event, Savings Bank of Walpole will host a Plaid Friday Launch Week from Wednesday, November 21 to Wednesday, November 28. The bank will set up information tables at each of their branches with Plaid Friday swag to inspire more people to participate in this year's event. Community members are encouraged to wear plaid during the launch week and stop by the bank's Marlboro Street branch to take a selfie in front of the bank's Plaid Friday backdrop. Savings Bank of Walpole will then share these photos on social media to further promote this event.

Plaid Friday was created in Oakland, CA to bring back the times when shopping for friends and family was a pleasurable leisurely activity. Now it is celebrated throughout the nation as part of the Shift Your Shopping Campaign.
